The double-deficit hypothesis for the developmental dyslexias.
The authors propose an alternative conceptualization of the developmental dyslexias, the double-deficit hypothesis (i.e., phonological deficits and processes underlying naming-speed deficitsExpand
Naming-Speed Processes, Timing, and Reading
This article integrates the findings in the special issue with a comprehensive review of the evidence for seven central questions about the role of naming-speed deficits in developmental readingExpand
Proust and the squid : the story and science of the reading brain
The act of reading is a miracle. Every new reader's brain possesses the extraordinary capacity to rearrange itself beyond its original abilities in order to understand written symbols. But how doesExpand
Reading Fluency and Its Intervention
This 3-part article represents an effort to confront 3 large lacunae in the research on reading fluency: definition, component structure, and theory-based intervention. Expand
Naming Speed and Reading: The Contribution of the Cognitive Neurosciences.
THIS TWO-PART ESSAY discusses how research in the developmental cognitive neurosciences can contribute to an understanding of the complex relations between various aspects of naming and readingExpand
Rapid automatized naming (RAN) and reading fluency: implications for understanding and treatment of reading disabilities.
Fluent reading depends on a complex set of cognitive processes that must work together in perfect concert. Rapid automatized naming (RAN) tasks provide insight into this system, acting as a microcosmExpand
Theoretical links among naming speed, precise timing mechanisms and orthographic skill in dyslexia
In this paper, we review several lines of convergent research to discuss the relationship between developmental dyslexia and slow symbol naming speed. We describe the interactive development ofExpand

  • 1 March 1986
A rapid, alternating stimulus (RAS) naming measure was designed to study the developing ability in dyslexic readers to direct attention to contextual patterns while performing a rapid serial namingExpand
Measuring Socioeconomic Status
This study investigated issues related to commonly used socioeconomic status (SES) measures in 140 participants from three cities (Atlanta, Boston, and Toronto) in two countries (United States andExpand
The second deficit: An investigation of the independence of phonological and naming-speed deficits in developmental dyslexia
An increasing body of dyslexia researchdemonstrates, in addition to phonologicaldeficits, a second core deficit in theprocesses underlying naming speed. Thehypothesized independence ofExpand
